10th Edition of the Brazil-Canada Chamber of Commerce at PDAC 2016 Event


The PDAC 2016 is just around the corner, and the Brazil-Canada Chamber of Commerce (BCCC) is very proud to announce the 10th Edition of the Brazil-Canada at PDAC series of events focused on the Brazilian mineral and mining industries.

The BCCC is honoured to have had the privilege to be the vehicle whereby hundreds of companies the opportunity to present their projects to an audience of high profile mining professionals and government representatives from around the globe and especially from the Brazilian mining community. They have striven to promote panels and debates that were able to cover the prevailing industry topics of interest of our members, sponsors and guests.

For their 10th anniversary, the Brazil-Canada Chamber of Commerce will once again host the traditional Mining Breakfast on March 7th at the offices of McCarthy Tetrault in Toronto and the BCCC Exclusive Mining Luncheon on March 8th at PDAC. Those events are a must-attend for everyone interested on the Brazilian mining industry and a unique networking opportunity.

In addition, BCCC is announcing a very special initiative. The Resource Foundation and BCCC are organizing a fundraising to help the people and the environment affected by the dam breach accident that happened in Brazil last November.
